Jackson's dad is in Las Vegas for Jackson's uncles batchelor party.... He is pretty ticked no one invited him to join in on the 'guys weekend.' We hope they win big because I have been finding a lot of big stuff that I need to order from Crate & Barrel. We are getting crazy over here on Friday night.

We need a baby gate, any recommendations? Do you put it at the top of the stairs or the bottom or both? Jackson's favorite spot in the new house is chillen on the stairs. He likes to be upstairs when I am down and down when I am up. Too bad for him, I won't be letting him out of my site until he is at least 16 and then I will still probably still follow him around, at a safe 'cool' mom distance.

casa de farris

We are moved in, well everything is out of trucks and spread throughout the house, but we are home! More pictures to come once we do a little decorating. (give me 2 years or so...) For now I am following a crazed explorer around. He has figured out how to open the refrigerator door and pulled out a delicious casserole, at least Greta thought it was delicious, and at least she cleaned it up. He also managed to open a can of red paint, in the garage thank goodness, you know the paint cans that you can never open, that kind. I can't keep up.
Our backyard, so really it doesn't matter if the house gets done, this is where we will be.

We finally had a weekend when we were in town. Therefor I made Charlie mow the grass, pack up all of the big stuff into the Jersey Mike's truck, clean the house, watch women's soccer (wahhh) and put Jackson to bed for me...
It was so nice and relaxing!

Just a few of the things I am loving about my little boy. I love how you grin when you know you shouldn't do something. I love how you head to the front door when I say daddy is home. I love how you carefully dip your food in ketchup. I love your wrist roll and how white it is from not seeing the sun. I love how your hair curls up in the back. I love how you suck your thumb and rub your head. I love how you rub my head when you are tired. I love how you waller. I love playing peek-a-boo with you. I love how you like to help with laundry, cleaning up, opening & closing things. I love that you bring me books to read. I love how excited you get when I build blocks and you know you are about to knock them down. I love how you swing your arm when you walk. I love how you like to play outside. I love that you squat down when you are thinking. I love how much I miss you when you are asleep. I love that you are mine, all mine.

Jackson and I cheered on the US women's soccer team to the World Cup finals this afternoon! I must admit that I watched a lot more of then Men's World Cup last year, mainly because I was trapped inside with a baby on my tata most of the time. Anyways, I take back all the things I said about women's soccer being a tad bit on the boring side to watch. You know what is boring, is whiny-baby-fall-down and mope guys soccer, now that is getting very boring. Girl Power! The game even got us excited enough to go out and kick a ball around. Jackson is not half bad, he might just follow in his mama's footsteps.
One good thing about guy's soccer is you can play without your shirt (or pants) on and no one cares!

We are moving to a new awesome house in less than 2 weeks! The tricky part is attempting to pack with Jackson's help. It goes something like me trying to throw some things in a box without him noticing. He sees me and trots over with a huge grin on his face, pulls everything out and gives it to me. I play along because he thinks he is helping and is so freaking cute. During his nap I managed to pack up the china cabinet. When he awoke from his nap he managed to climb on top of the boxes and I heard a nice little crunch. I think I will worry about it later.

Happy 31st Birthday to my Grandmama... She is oh so funny and getting pretty good at chasing me! I tried to tell her everyone would think it was funny if she stuck her face in the cake, she resisted, I don't know how or why?

It was hot out again yesterday so Jackson decided to take matters into his own hands. He curiously watched how Greta drank water from his play table and then decided to stand on his tip toes pull himself up and dip his own face into the water, over and over and over. He was pretty proud.
Ahhh what a great idea Greta!

Ahmmm what's so funny mom?

Happy 4th!

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. My family came over for a cook 'in' and let Jackson entertain us for a few hours. It was perfect. Highlights of the meal included a delicious burger bar prepared by Charlie, dank pasta salad and deviled eggs from Brittni, a burnt blueberry crisp (every bite still got eaten) and some salsa & cheese dip... because nothing says America like a little queso!

I need back-up. Someone come over and help me get this wild hooligan dressed!

Jackson is a strong advocate of Chef Boy-ar-dee's slogan, 'Obviously delicious. Secretly nutritious.' And I can attest the 'rice with chicken and vegetables' is really good, seriously. I have to hide the little red containers in the back of the cabinet because if he sees one he has to have it. Yesterday he started licking his bowl! I wonder where he saw that? But don't be fooled he has quite the sophisticated palate. Tonight he had caprese salad and ate it up!
